Resolve to Travel with the Family

Sis Tearing It Up - Part 3

There is great skiing near our Blue Ridge Cabins

January is traditionally filled with the best intentions. The holidays are behind us, we’ve said farewell to extended family, and the children are back at school. It’s not uncommon to feel a little blue during the short days and long nights, but we combat those feelings by making resolutions. We resolve to exercise more, work more diligently, and spend quality time with our families.

We can’t help with all of those, but we can help you create quality time with the family at our Blue Ridge Parkway cabins.

Do the kids like to ski or snow tube? Our North Carolina cabins are close to several ski mountains. You can plan for several weekend trips and explore a different resort each time. Go tubing at Hawksnest one weekend – said to have the largest snow tubing park on the east coast – and head to Appalachian Ski Mountain for some late night skiing another weekend.

Back at the Blue Ridge Mountains cabins, warm yourselves with hot cocoa, huddle around a campfire, or gather together for a family game night. We have several pet friendly cabins, so you can bring your best friend, too.

This is the kind of New Year’s Resolution that is worth keeping. Enjoy your children while they are home to enjoy.

Ski Appalachian Mountain

Monday, December 14th, 2009

There is fantastic skiing less than an hour from our Blue Ridge Mountain family cabins, at Appalachian Mountain. There is snow on the mountain and the slopes are open seven days a week. Bring your family here during the school break over the holidays.

New Year’s Eve at Appalachian Mountain will be loads of fun. There will be moonlit skating from 10pm until midnight, along with torchlight skiing. The restaurant will be hopping, serving breakfast to anyone in the mood for it. Fireworks will light up the ski when 2010 arrives.

Our Blue Ridge rental cabins are ideal for families with both skiers and non-skiers. While the skiers head to the chairlift, the non-skiers can head to nearby towns Boone or Jefferson for cafe hopping and shopping. Or they can go for a day hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains. At the end of the day, everyone can meet up to share a meal and swap stories.
